    SPECIES FEATURE

    not so cute
    i have one living under the house
    in the bush
    happily destroying the foundations
    with its huge claws
    the giant ones were supposed to become extinct
    300,000 years ago,,,fraid not
    one is still alive under my house

    Eli Lilly has assured everyone of their primo feature, exorbitant pricing for insulin (while the Musk feature was a bait and switch/troll opportunity).

    The tweet, sent around 1:30 p.m. Thursday, read: “We are excited to announce insulin is free now.” The post remained online for hours, attracting over 3,000 likes and hundreds of retweets.

    As of Friday, the impostor account @EliLillyandCo is no longer verified, its tweets have been set to private.

    The official Eli Lilly account responded Thursday afternoon with an apology, confirming that “Our official Twitter account is @LillyPad.”

    The company joins the scores of other blue check marks plagued by parody accounts after Musk announced a new policy allowing anyone to buy “verification” for $8 a month. Pranksters impersonating celebrities, brands and even Musk himself have flooded the site with unflattering messages since the update launched Wednesday.

    In response, Musk has reportedly suspended Twitter Blue sign-ups as of Friday afternoon, less than 48 hours after the launch. The move was to “help address impersonation issues,” according to an internal memo obtained by Zoë Schiffer of Platformer.

    Confused users can tell who was verified before Twitter Blue and who paid $8 for the privilege by clicking on the checkmark in people’s profiles. Musk also confirmed the rollout of “official” badges for notable companies and other entities — a grey badge found under the user’s name.

    Eli Lilly, along with drugmakers Novo Nordisk and Sanofi, currently dominate the insulin market. Together, they account for the entire insulin supply in the U.S. and 90 per cent worldwide.

    The three people who discovered insulin, a life-saving drug, originally sold their patents to the University of Toronto for $1 each. One of the team members, Sir Frederick G. Banting, remarked: “Insulin does not belong to me, it belongs to the world.”
